Question about Barebone Systems
when I connect the system to to the power outlet the system does not start. I can see the clock in the frontpanel but it does not start :(
I already bought a new power adapter but the system still does not work.
What could be the problem? Is the motherboard broken?
Thanks for help,
Due to the fact that the clock is working on the front panel I would say you at least have some power
1. If your power supply has 110/220 selection on the back make sure that is set to the appropriate
2. Check to make sure the power is attached to the board right due to you changing the power supply
make sure that the if the board requires the additional 4 pin and or any others from the power supply
that they also are plugged into the mother board!
3. Check to make sure your switches from the power switch/ reset switch / hd lite / etc are all
properly in the right spot and in the right direction observing positive and negative orientation.
If all these are done and still nothing happens and the fan on the power supply is working you still can due further testing on the power supply using a multimeter and checking that the connectors to the board are functioning properly, if they are and you have done all the above things two possibilities remain, one your processor is installed wrong or not working or as you thought, your board could be malfunctioning..
I forgot to mention that you also have to make sure that the fan's are also plugged into the board properly (cpu fan, case fan, etc) this can also disable your computer from starting!
Note: I am going by the information above, if your computer made a sound or anything else please let me know!
Hope this helps
